NOTICE: EFFECTIVE 5/29/2021
While we are in the process for obtaining our NYS Liquor License, general admission guests of legal age will be able to bring in 6-pack sized coolers of beer and wine coolers to the grandstand midway for personal consumption. This notice will be posted on a week to week basis until alcohol sales resume at our facility. Thank you for your patronage.


The Governor’s office released new guidelines dated May 17, 2021, stating that as of May 19, 2021 there are no longer capacity limits based upon maximum occupancy percentages for outdoor auto racing venues. In addition, the order only indicates mask guidelines for indoor activities. PRI Motorsports and WCIS is adhering to these most recent guidelines. Because we interpret these guidelines as not requiring mandatory masks, we are asking our patrons to be conscientious and respectful of others, sit or stand 6 feet from each other when possible, or if it looks to be in practice by other nearby patrons at the admission gate, in the grandstand, midway, and/or concessions lines. According to the guidelines, the NYS Department of Health strongly suggests non-fully vaccinated patrons wear a face mask when indoors at events.
